3M Open DFS Picks for 2020

You aren’t the only one having trouble settling into a lineup on DraftKings this week. For crying out loud, Lucas Glover ($9,400) is priced higher than Jon Rahm was at the Memorial, while Doc Redman and Henrik Norlander are priced north of $8,500.

Right there, you know the value options are few and far between.

As far as my top 3M Open DFS picks go, here is what I have come up with.

Tony Finau – $10,900

Tony Finau is hitting it too well and is carrying too much confidence not to take notice. I certainly did when I made my 3M Open prediction.

Sure, $10,900 is a lot to pay for a guy who hasn’t won since 2016, but Tony’s a birdie-making machine whose game is firing on all cylinders.

We know Finau is one of the longest hitters in the game and that his ball-striking is on point (11th in SG: tee-to-green), but the bomber quietly paced the field last week in putts per GIR and clocks in 19th on tour in putting average.

Mathew Wolff – $9,700

Surprise, surprise, I’m going back to Matthew Wolff in fantasy golf. It’s a bit risky when he’s this high, but need I remind you of his history at TPC Twin Cities?

Shooting 62-65 over the weekend at the 2019 3M Open probably had more to do with his hot hand than the venue itself, but coming back to a place where the vibes are strong definitely doesn’t hurt. Also worth noting, Matt was striping it off the tee last week at the Memorial and is starting to regain his mojo.

Scott Stallings – $7,600

Some 55 pounds lighter than the version that won three times between 2011-2014, Scott Stallings is on the verge of putting it all together. In four starts since play resumed, Stallings is a cumulative 36-under-par, posting red numbers in 13 of 16 rounds played.

What else makes Scott an intriguing 3M Open DFS pick on DK this week?

How about the fact that he’s made the second-most eagles on the PGA Tour this season (13) and ranks 5th in round 1 scoring average (68.88)?

Troy Merritt – $7,500

This week wasn’t the first time I featured Troy Merritt as one of my tournament sleepers, and it’s not going to be the last.

Anytime I can invest in this silky-smooth putter on a manageable layout, I’m looking to find ways. Low scores with lots of birdies are especially welcomed in GPPs on DraftKings, and we don’t have to question Troy’s ability to go low.

On top of shooting multiple 62s on the PGA Tour, Troy has also thrown up a couple of 61s.

Charles Howell III – $7,400

With zero top-40s since the Sony Open in Hawaii, most will be steering clear of Charles Howell III in Minnesota. However, “Chucky Three Sticks” is one of those guys who repeatedly plays well at golf courses that suit his eye.

While the sample size at TPC Twin Cities is microscopic due to this being just the second edition of the 3M Open, I can tell you Charles made three eagles at this tournament last summer and carded just two bogies the entire week (and one double).

Austin Cook – $6,800

Trending in the right direction over his last four events, Austin Cook needs to continue making moves if he’s going to advance to the FedEx Cup playoffs. Some familiar faces hovering at the same price point should keep Cook’s ownership down, and I actually prefer the fact that he didn’t play last week at the Memorial.

Instead of losing confidence and getting tormented at Muirfield Village, the Arkansas alum took some time to off to get ready for a summer push. Look for some solid play to ensue.

My 2020 3M Open DFS Lineup for GPPs

  • Tony Finau – $10,900
  • Matthew Wolff – $9,700
  • Scott Stallings – $7,600
  • Troy Merritt – $7,500
  • Charles Howell III – $7,400
  • Austin Cook – $6,800

I’m anchoring my lineup with Finau and Wolff at the top and taking a chance on some middling players from there. Stallings and Merritt may see some decent exposure due to high finishes since the restart, but CHIII and Cook are likely to be relatively unnoticed.

Once you commit to your 3M Open DFS picks, you may want to consider attacking the head-to-head matchups. Check out my favorites here.
